Interpres Technicus

The technical translator and interpreter, known as Interpres Technicus, is a professional with their proper habits and qualities that distinguish them (because of their body and behaviour) from other Homo Sapiens Sapiens.

On the next pages we will look more closely at their qualities.

1. Absorbent nervous system

The nervous system of Interpres Technicus is characterized by a sponge-like brain that absorbs information about gestures, terminology, and vocabulary from other linguistic areas, and releases the acquired information with an extraordinary speed and ease.

In combination with the highly developed hearing system, the absorbing nervous system makes Interpres Technicus a very attentive and perspicacious professional.

2. Nutrition

Individuals observed to date have shown eating habits focused on consuming exceptionally large amounts of coffee, a substance that seems to provide essential nutrients.

A study conducted on a significant number of individuals have shown that the large intake of caffeine has led Interpres Technicus to develop a special energy system, powered by coffee. This property allows them to work continuously, also at night, more or less consciously.

3. Relationships

Interpres Technicus is usually surrounded by cats, because the habits and social behaviours of the two species are similar.

However, there are frequent cases when the cat takes over the dominant role, which it will not fail to manifest in a variety of situations, destroying important documents, leaving its hair on the clothing of Interpres Technicus, and occupying chairs and other work places.

Despite this, Interpres Technicus seems so devoted to their cats that in their work they use the software known under the name of C.A.T.

4. Body temperature

Due to the long sitting hours at work, Interpres Technicus exhibits lower body temperature than other individuals of the Homo Sapiens Sapiens species. In order to solve this problem, they tend to dress warmly and wrap themselves in a thick blanket, in a desperate attempt to reach an optimal body temperature.

5. Habitat

Numerous individuals of the Interpres Technicus species have been observed in their own caves, sitting on the couch, preferably a comfortable and soft one, or at the desk.

In some cases, one may notice their timid attempts to use very expensive ergonomic chairs, which is supposed to solve the back problems they are afraid of. Nevertheless, they always come back to their comfortable and so adored couch.
